Velvet Green 
Lawn Grass Seed 

Analyzed As To Purity 
Tested As To Germination 

Absolutely the Besf Lawn Seed Experience 
Can Suggest, or That Money Can Buy 

Will Produce a Beautiful and Permanent Lawn 
In_Four to Six Weeks 

A smooth velvety lawn surroundingr a house adds 
not only to the value, but enhances the enjoyment 
of every home, -whether it be in city, town or 
country. When properly made, n lawn is the best 
investment a home owner can make. The follow- 
ing suggestions may be of benefit, especially to 
th'ise who are about to make anew lawn. 

A Inwn maj' be made in two'ways. by sodding or 
by sowing seed. Sodding is not only very expen- 
sive but unsatisfactory as well. Sods are ordinarily 
taken from the pasture or along the roadside and 
almost invariablv contain weed seeds and coaise 
tufty grasses which make their apptarance after 
the lawn is made. Seeding is not only cbeaper* 
but is attended -vv^ith belter results. 

The most important thing to consider in selecting 
seed for law-n grass, is to obtain a proper mixture 
of several varieties, for two rea.=ons. First, each 
variety is at its best during a certain part of the 
season. By properly choosing early, n-edium and 
l.ite grasses, a smooth, even, green lawn is assured 
from early spring to late autumn. Second, a given 
area can support only so many grass plants of one kind for they all absorb the same food, but if several varieties are sown, the same area will sup- 
port many more plants, as different sorts live on various elements in the soil. This will give a much thicker and more luxuriant turf all over the lawn. 
With these facts in mind our Druid Hill park Velvet Green Lawn Grass Seed is scientifically combined. Our experience of many years has givt n 
us an intimate knowledge of grasses, their habits and requirements. In ;our Druid Hill Park Velvet Green Lawn Grass Seed are included only the 
very best varieties — pure, clean, and free from foul seed. 

Our Druid Hill Park Velvet Green Lawn Grass is very quick in growth, is ready for mowing in from four to six weeks from time the seed is sown. 
From early spring until late in the fall, l.iwns sown with our Druid Hill Park Velvet Green Lawn Grass remain green and fresh, for the reason, 
that this mixture includes quick growing varieties which are at their best soon after the frost is ont of the ground, others that mature and flourish 
in midsummer, and still others that are greenest and sturdiest in autumn. For each of these seasons there are sever.il dilTerent varieties living on 
different elements in the soil, so that one is certain always to have a satisfactory carpet of green wherever our Druid Hill Park Velvet Green Lawn 
Grass is sown. 

Not only is our Druid Hill Park Velvet Green Lawn Grass suitable for the making of new lawns, but it will be found equally valuable for quickly 
renewinif imperfect, old and worn-out areas. Alw.iys see that the soil is thoroughly prepared, carefully pulverized and enriched with Sheep Jlanure 
or Bone Fertilizer before sowing the seed. One pound will sow 20x20 feet, 10 pounds will sow 50xl50fcet, 60 pounds will sow an acre. 30 pounds

Shady Nook Lawn Grass Seed 

A popular mixture of grasses best adapted for sowing in shad}' places 
where ordinary grasses will not thrive. In nearly all lawns where there 
are trees, there will be found bare spots which can be made green and 
bright by using this mixture, if the shaded places and bare spots are 
thoroughly worked and enriched before sowing seed. J^ Lb. 10c. J^ Lb.

\veed seeds. It contains no dirt, straw, leaves or 
bedding of ativ kind, l>eing .secured from the ce- 
mented floors of the Chicasro stock j'ards. It is

Bone Lawn Fertilizer 

stable manure should never be used as a top- 
dressing on lawns, for it always contains large 
quantities of weeds. We have, therefore, had pre- 
dated for us a special lawn fertilizer which is 
clean and high grade in every respect, and free 
from disagreeable odors. It prodncesa rapid and 
rich green growth of grass, and should be sown 
boadcast in the spring or fall. 10 pounds for 300

BOLGIANO'S 

Seed Laboratory 

FULLT EQUIPPED JULT 1910 

"It is said tliat J. Bolgiano & Son, Baltimore, 
Md. has the most complete equipment for testing 
Seed for Purity and Vitality to be found in the 
United States, outside the Department of Agricul- 
ture." — Florist Review, Aug. 17th, 1913. 



Slluefration No, 1 

In this part of our Laboratory, we analyze all 
Seed for Purity. Our Seed Analysts are Graduate 
Botanists and have completed special courses under 
former United States Government Experts. Note 
the delicate scales which register one thousandth 
part of a gram, inclosed in Glass Case, also the. 
Tray of Glass Bottles containing Pure Seeds — 
every operation is most carefully recorded. 



lilastratiou No. 2 

In this part of our Laboratory, we test all Seed 
for Germination. At least two tests are accuratelj- 
made of every variety of Seed we sell. We use 
two "Standard" Scientific Germinators which are 
heated by Gas passing through Mercury. 



Illaetration No. 3 

To the right you will see a Scientific Seed 

Mixer which is indispenseable in determining the 

exact purity of samples drawn from any number 

of sacks of Seed. To the left is a scientific 

Grass Seed Separator which is regulated by 

different degrees of Air Pressure and is 

of great assistance in quickly 

determining purity.

"Prosperity Tomato" 



The Wonder Among New Early Tomatoes That Has Attracted So Much Attention. 

310. We didn't want to name this New Early Red Tomato "PROSPERITY" but we couldn't help it, no othername could tell so quickly and so 
thoroughly how good it was. 

"PROSPERITY" means Success, Good Fortune, Entire and Complete Satisfaction; finding a Tomato possessing all these qualifications aud 
advantages we instinctively thought of "PROSPERITY" 

Description: — One of the earliest of all tomatoes, a brilliant red, an enormous j-ielder, grown and developed from single plant .selections covering 
a period of five years, filled full of strong, sturdy, healthy, new blood — so good we have felt inclined to wait another year so as to accumulate a 
larger stock of seed before offering it for sale — but here it is and the opportunity is yours while our limited supply of seed lasts. Price: Pkt. 25c, 
Vi Oz. 60c. 1 Oz. $1.00. Vi tb. S3.00. l,b. $10.00. Postpaid. 



In New York— Most Wonderful Tomato Ever Grown. 

Oti February 16, 1913, Mr. D. A. Coleman, of Albany Co.,N. Y., •writes: 
'* I £re7v the ' P)^osperity^ Totnatoes iast year. Xliey are the greatest early 
tomatoes ever grown. TJiey ivere 10 days earlier than tli£ I J^ L side by 
side. As for yield they are most wondeiful ever zrow7i in this couuty. 
Neighbors fro77i all over came to see ihem growing."' 

In Florida— Results Were Wonderful.

"In 7ega7'd to our c7-op of ' Prosperity' Tomato: this variety was far aliead

Two Weeks Ahead 

Everybody Wants 

Them 

On Nov. 21. 1912, 
Mr, J. R. Rogers of 
Anderson Co., Tex. 
writes: "I had one 
acre this stmig 
planted i n Bolgi- 
ano's I. X. L. To-

weeks ahead of any 
other variety and 
were so fine that 
everybody around 
Jure won^t plant 
any thins 'text year 
but the I. X. L. To- 
mato.' 



Bolgiano's I. X. L. Tomato. Extremely Early, Wonderfully Prolific 

A week earJicr than the Earliana. More productive than the Chalk's Jewel. As large as the Gnat B. B, 
AS solid as the IVew Century. In fact. One of the ll'orld's Leading Extremely Early Tonialo. 
277. In Market Gardener's Field Tests, I. X. L. Tomato proved to be a week to ten days earlier than the Spark's Earliana, with an abundance of 
Fruit larger and more prolific than Chalk's Jewel, in fact, any number of specimens could be found as large as the Great B. B. Tomato. It has little 
more vine and leaves than the Wealthy Tomato, thus protecting" the blossoms from being easily knocked off by heavy rains or winds: al.so protecting 
the fruit from bein? sunburned or scalded. The I. X. 1,. Tomato is without a sing'le exception the Leading Extremely Early Tomato, and while 
many of the most experienced Tomato growers tell us we cannot say too much in favor of this excellent Early Tomato, there are many who have not 
yet grown it. To them, we say again, do not experiment with it but plant your entire early crop in I. X. L,. Tomato, Your crop will net you big re- 
turns. We stake our reputation on I. X. L. 



1. One of the Earliest, Largest, absolutely smooth Tomatoes on Earth. A 
week earlier than the "Earliana," and as large as the "Great B. B." 

2. A beautiful, brilliant red color. 

3. Vines are a perfect mass of large, smooth fruit, a single plant yielding 
'4 bushel. 

4. Fruit is extremely early, enormously abundant, ripens all at once. 

5. Vines compact and can be placed two feet apart in three foot rows. 

6. As an extremely early prolific stem setter it is a wonder. 

Ripe I. X. L.— Just 47 Days— In Virginia 

On June 19th, 1912, Mr. C. F. Masterson, of Greenville Co., Va., writes: 
I am today picking ripe Tomatoes of the Tomato seed I got of yon. this 
spring of Bolgiano's Famous/. X. L., just forty-seven days from the time 
I put them in the field until I had ripe ones. 

Florida— I. X. L. Certainly Were Fine 

On January 14th, 1913, Mr. John B. English of Liberty Co., Fla., writes: 
" T planted Bolgiano's I. A'. L. Tomato last seasoii. They certainly were 
fine. There were none better tfiat went to PittsburgJi 7narket. 

Georgia — I. X. L. Wins in Every Race 

H. IV Stamps, Floyd Co., Ga., ivrites: " After trying all tlie other lead- 
ing early varieties oj the most prominent seed Growers in the country,! 
amforced to the conclusion that the I. X. L. is the earliest, smoothest, most 
prolific and best flavored Tonialo grown. Its merits cannot be exaggerated." 

Massachusetts— Never Had Such A Crop 

Mr. Charles L. Tabis, of Middlesex Co., Mass., writes as follows: "I 
have been raising Tomatoes for the last 12 years and I have yiever Jiad such 
a crop as I had last year from Bolgiano's I. X. L. Tomato Seed." 

In Ohio— I. X. L. Makes Money Fast 

Mr. Wm. Dulcaster. of Mahoning Co., Ohio, writes asfollows: "I tnust 
thank you for the I. X. L. Towato Seed I bought from you in tlie Spring. 
' I have made ^^y)^ from an acre and expect to sell about 150 baskets more.' 
/ receitiea$\.00 per basket for all I planted. It is the largest and earliest 
Tomato I ever grew. I felt rich wlien I picked 200 baskets two weeks ago 
and received Sl.OOyty;' every basket." 



7. The absence of unnecessary leaves permits all fruit to ripen so remark- 
ably early. 

8. It is almost like finding money to plant the I. X. L. Tomato. 

9. The largest growers tell us that we cannot say too much in favor of the 
I . X. L. Tomato.

Important— Read These Two Letters 

On Nov. 3rd , 1913, Mr. Gore Enn is if Kent County, Del., wrote: " Your 
I. X. L. Tomato is as fine as any one would want to grow and I think I 
could not praise it up too much. Our first setting the frost killed and then 
we reset — tJiey seemed to stand still for two loeeks — then they began to grow 
and we picked the first tomatoes the first of July and from then oti U7itil 
frost." 

This is the Other One 
A Money Maker When Every Thing Goes Wrong 

Mr. T. D. Lawrence, of Licking Co., Ohio, writes asfollojvs: "T had a 
fine crop of your I. X. L. Tomatoes last year although we had tlie worst 
drouth I ever experienced. Nad my first setting froze dozvn. I reset again 
and it turned cold again, the plants stoodseetning to gobackfortwoweeks, 
and then started to grow, then we had a long bad drouth for weeks, never- 
theless, these tomatoes ?nade mc more money than any I ever raised." 

I. X. L. Bore Fine Crop— All Others Failed 

On Feb. 14th, 1912, Mrs. R. S. Sanders, of Franklin Co.. Va., writes: "/ 
consider the I. X. L. Tomato the acme of perfection. During the three 
months' dry weather last season when all others failed. I.X. L. lield up 
its head and bore large, smooth Tomatoes nntil killed by frost." 
About 800 Crates To The Acre 
Mr. R. E. Athey. of Putnam Co.. Fla., writes as follows: " The pound oJ 
I. X. L. Tomato Seed which 1 bought J j-om vou a year ago was planted at 
Yiana. Arizona, and made the best crop of Tomatoes and the earliest in 
that section. The fruit was even sized, true to shape and color and shipped 
belter than any other variety. It made 800 crates on a little more than one 
acre. I consider the I . X. L. the best early market variety." 



"Greater Baltimore" 

The World's Greatest Canning Tomato 

Tomato Investigations 

Purdue University Agricultural Experiment Station, Lafayette, Indiana 

Extracts from Bulletin No. 165, Vol. XVI, April, 1913 

"The average calculated yields for three years of eleven varieties tested shows 'Greater Baltimore' ranking First with a yield of 16.25 tons per 
acre against Stone 13.38 tons per acre. 

"Considering' Yield and Quality the eleven varieties tested will rank as follows as a field crop for canning: — First 'Greater Baltimore.' 

"Picking season from July 25th to October 1st, the 'Greater Baltimore' yielded nearly 22 tons per acre. 

"The 'Greater Baltimore,' which has been gaining in popularity with the Canning Trade during the past two years, begins bearing 12 to 16 days 
earlier than the Stone, when both are sown and handled in a similar manner throughout the season. 

"it will also be seen that 'Greater Baltimore' is as early a bearer as Chalk's Early Jewel, which is considered an early sort. 

"it is largely the Earliness and the Uniformity with which the plants bear a Large Number of Large Smooth Fruit throughout the ripening 
season that makes the 'Greater Baltimore superior to the Stone, which has been the standard canning variety for many years. 

"The average date of first ripening for the 'Greater Baltimore' was 120 days from the sowing of the seed in the hot beds and 65 days from the 
time the young plants were set in the field." 



They Beat Stone Tomato 15 Times 

Mr. Cross, Siipi. Kenish Canning Co., Davish Co. Utah, -triles: ''In 
7-eply io yo-ur inquiry, will say I planted tlie 'Greater Baltimore' injifteen 
different fields separate from our Stone and that in every section and every 
field they ripened about ten days earlier than any other. They ripen even 
to the stem , ar-e very solid, also prolific and of a bea utifiil deep red color. 
I consider them an IDEAL TOiSIA TO for both grower and canner." 

Immense Yielders and the Finest Quality 

^[r. T. IV. Stansbury , of Baltimore Co., Md.. 'critrs: "I have grown Bol- 
giano's 'Greater Baltimore' Tomato for the last tivo seasons, and neither 
wet 'weather or dry weatlier affected its yield. I 'would sooner have them 
than any other tomato I have ever used,fortliey are immense yielders and 
the finest quality." 

Wherever Used Always Brings Orders from Neighbors 

Maffet Bros., Voj-i Co., Pa., writes: " We Jiscd 'Greater Baltimore' To- 
mato seed bought from you ' as t year, and raised 1256 bushels of tomatoes 
on two acres of grou>id. Much the largest yield in our neighborhood. 
1256 bushels loere sold and we used quitca number of bushels at home. Our 
success put some of our neighbors in the notion of 'Greater Baltimore' , so 
this order includes seed for ourselves and three of our yteighbors." 
Buys "Greater Baltimore"— Could Get Stone Free 

Mr. Jos. H. Brampton, of Talbot Co., Md., writes as follows: "Last year

loytiato growing. It is better than Stone ever was. 

2. fust doubles the yield of many of the best cropping tomatoes you have 
I re}' grown. 

3. Smooth, 7uell-formed and deep from stem to blossom. 

4. Its extretnely heavy weight is due to its frmnexs and great 
iw^atiness. 

5. It ripens evenly to the stem and is entirely free from ridges, cracks 
and blight. 



6. Unrivalled shipper, due to its solidity and firmness.

After eight seasons have pa.ssed. and the "Greater Baltimore" Tomato has been grown in every Tomato State in the Union, and in many 
Foreign Countries it is almost impossible to give a description of its merits without seeming to claim for it Supernatural Powers; so in describing 
it, we will as far as practical, confine ourselves to extracts from the experience of those who have grown the "Greater Baltimore" during the past 
seven years. 

A Florida man writes, "It is the finest Shipping Tomato ever sold — tested side by side, and shipped side by side with five leading varieties — 
it beats them all." Another writes. "Out of 15 Red varieties it was the best of all." "Very prolific— it yielded from 300 to more than 650 bushels of 
60 Lbs. per acre." One man raised 17,000 plants from '4 Ll>-of "Greater Baltimore" Tomato Seed. "Vigorous grower. ' strong, healthy plants. Fruit 
uniform in shape and size, large very regular, smooth, shapely, fleshy, very meaty, ripens well and evenly. Beautiful bright red color, fruit%-ery 
handsome, dozens weighing 30 ounces, and several exceeding 32 ounces. Seed planted a month later than "Dukeof York" produced shipping 
fruit two weeks before that variety was ready. "Fine crop in bad season " Excellent keeper — has kept until New Year's day. Rust and blight 
proof. Recommended unreservedly by a grower for "the section aroimd Lakeland, Fla." Had proved better than any variety tried at Picton, 
Canada. "Stands the heat and drouifht of Mississippi." "Very valuable for S luth Carolina climate." In the canning districts of Delaware and 
Maryland "yielded a fine crop in a bad season." Texas says there is no better tomato in size and taste on the market; not an acid tomato — very fine 
flavored. As a home garden Tomato "the results have been far beyond expectation." On our own table we sliced the "Greater Baltimore" 
Tomato like we would slice a fine tender roast beef. We have had a good crop and have lowered our prices accordingly. 
In Kentucky— They Beat Them All 



On March 4th, 1913. Mr. Edw. Dudley of Critten Co., Ky.,wyites: I 
have used your Greater Baltimore Totnato for past six years for cann ing, 
for market and for home use and they beat any other tomato that I have 
ever tried. I find them earlier than New Stone and weightier and the 
flesh is almost as solid as an apple. 

In Virginia— The Best Tomato That Grows 

On Sept. 10th, 1912, Messrs. Lorch Bros , 705 Callowhill Street, Phila- 
delphia, Pa , writes: "This is to inform you that we have planted out 200 
acres at Noifolk, Va,, of Bolgiano's Greater Baltitnoie Tomato Seed 
obtained from you, and the wonderful production cf the finest quality of 
Canning Tomatoes produced by this variety is a great amazement to all 
Truck Growers in that section, who have never seen a variety of Tomato 
that produced such enormous quantities, at the same time such superior 
Catming Tomatoes. IVearevery grateful toyoufor-supplying uswithsuch 
good seed, and the greater Baltimore Tomato is without doubt the greatest 
yielder and the best variety of Tomato that grows for Canning purposes." 
In Utah— It Suits Them 

On Feb. 12th. 1913. Springville Canning Co. of Springville . Utah,W7-ites: 
Your Greater Baltimore tomato seed suits us. 



In Maryland— Considered The Best On The Market 

On April 18th, 1913, Capt. M. B. Nichols, of Easton , Md., writes: I have 
been using your Greater Baltimore Tomato seedfora mtmberof years and 
I consider them by far the best Tomato seed on the market to-day. Two of 
my tenants buy their seed direct from you every year and pay your p> ices 
rather than accept' the seeds furnished by our Canneries free of charge. 
One of my men bought 5 pounds of vour Greater Baltimore last week." 

In Delaware — Produced An Average Of 25 Tons An Acre 

Mr. H. Studt, of Kent Co.. Del. .writes as follows:' My friend, Mr. A. 
G. Turner, a large, practical successful farmer, produced this past season 
an a-verage of 25 ions an acre of Greater Baltimore Tomatoes from seed 
obtained from you and when thefr'ost killed the plants there were yet re- 
maining on single plants as many as 100 tomatoes, for I personally count- 
ed them myself. ' ' 

In Missouri — The Best Ever Seen 

On fan. 30th 1912, Odessa Canning Co . Ode- , writes as follows: 

We think the Greater Baltimore the best .„>ia Tomato --e have ever

Bolgiano's Wonderful New Tomato 

"My Maryland" 

King of Them All. Has Surpassed the Best Yielding Tomato in the World 
More Than 100 Per Cent— A Marvelous Double Yielder. 

77. Side by side it has produced three times the crop produced by the 
Stone or New Century. It has even doubled the yield of the Greater 
Baltimore Tomato. 

The vast possibilities of this New Tomato are astounding. We believed 
in Greater Baltimore Tomato the limit of productiveness had been 
reached but "My Maryland" so far outyields any other Tomato ever 
grown that its remarkable productiveness is amazing. People have 
driven miles to see a field of "My Maryland" Tomatoes and they all 
marveled at the prodigious abundance of the crops it had produced. 
The fields were literally covered with the finest well-shaped, perfectly 
formed, solid, smooth, bright red, uniform fruit, all free from roughness 
and cracks, much larger than any ever seen before. It was called then 
and there "A Winner" audit well deserved the title. The Tomatoes are 
much larger and far heavier than either the Greater Baltimore or the 
New Century. By most careful re-selections for five years, we have 
thorougly established the purity and trtieness of "My Maryland "Tomato, 
and are delighted to be the introducer of a Tomato which from stiwt to

Greatest Blight Resisting Tomato on Earth 

311. Not a single grower of Tomatoes in Florida or in any locality 
where blight has injured the Tomato crops, should go through this 
season without trying this most excellent new Tomato. We call it

ravages of blight which has been so discouraging to our Florida cus- 
tomers. It is red in color, large msize, fine flavored, firm and meaty, 
very prolific, and about as early as the Earliana. It is a most excel- 
lent shipper, in fact, duringour entire timeof selectingand breeding 
up the Florida Special, we took the utmost pains in selecting such 
tomatoes as would stand the long shipment to the northern markets 
from Florida. We are confident Bolgiano's Florida Special Tomato

"Trucker's Reward" Wax Bean 




Bolgiano's "Enormous" Early Lima Bean 

1035. This wonderful new Lima is the earliest, largest and best of all 
large Limas; the \-igorous bushes are crowded with enormous pods. The 
delicious green beans are larger than any other Lima Bean. It yields 
continuously from June until frost. Both the pods and the luscious fla- 
vored beans are much larger and considerably thicker than the Large 
Bush Lima. The plants grow upright about 30 inches high and 24 inches 
across, with luxuriant sheltering foliage and are very sturdy. Often five 
to eight pods measuring five to six inches long by IH inches wide are 
borne in clusters on one stalk. The shelled beans either green or dry 
are nearly twice as thick as the large Bush Limas. "Enormous" Bush 
Limas will out yield Large Bush Limas by 33 1-3 per cent., on account of 
the greater size of both pods and beans. The Seed Beans :ire greenish 
and very handsome, while the dried beans of the Large Bush Limas are 
pure white. ^A Pt. 20c. Ft. 35c. Qt. 60c. 4 Qts. S2.00. Pk. $3.85. Bu. S15.00.

Tlie only stiffly erect busk form of the popular "Potato'"'' Lima. 

Both pods and beans are twice the size of Dreer's Busk Lima 

and more than half again as large as the Dreer's Pole Lima. 

1119 Fordhook Bush Lima is altogether imique. Nothing like it has 
ever been seen before. Of strong, erect, trui bushlike growth, never 
running, the bushes averaging 20 to 30 inches in height by 20 to 24 inches 
across the top. The foliage is of heavy texture and very dark green in 
color. The stalks that produce the blossoms are thrown out from the 
latteral and main stalks; the pods are borne in ''clusters" of from four 
to eight. Tiie i)Ods resemble those of the Dreer's Bush Lima, but aver- 
age more than doable the size, measuring from 4to5K inches long about 
1 'j inches wide, by as much as three-fourths of an inch thick. The pods 
contain three to five large beans with an average of four. 

Fordhook Bush Lima is fully 33 1-3 per ecnt. hea\-ier cropper and there- 
fore, is bound to entirely displace the Dreer'sBush Lima, In season it 
is from four to six days earlier. Ft, 3Sc, Qt. 60c. 4 Qts. §2,00, Pk. $3,85,

it out doors here at Baltimore. It is a sure header, good sel-

large numbers ripen and heavy pickings can thus be made at a remark- 
ably early time. These Melons average about 90 per cent, standard size 
to pack 45 to the crate 12x12x24 inches. It is the most valuable sort to 
plant where first in the market is of great importance. The heavy gray 
netting is closely laced. The meat light green, spicy and sweet. This 
variety is in great demand by many of the most successful market grow- 
ers and shippers. Pkt. 10c. Oz, 15c K Lb. 25c. Lb. 60c.

is very essential to enable the grower to pick by color (the onl.v proper way to 
pick) when the melon is in the proper stage for shipping long distances. Rind 
very tough. Meat light green, changing very slightly toward salmon near the

Christmas Gift or Santa Claus Cantaloupe 

127. Just think of having a delicious, fresh Cantaloupe to eat with your Christ- 
mas dinner. It was originated in California. The rind is mottled. The shell 
is h.trd and about one-eighth of an inch thick. There is no seed cavit.v. The 
seeds are imbedded in a jelly-like pulp. The light green flesh is absolutely 
striugless; its flavor excels anything in the melon line: it is in a class by itself, 
and is beyond description. Plant thesame time you would any other cantaloupe. 
When the under side of the melon becomes >a golden yellow, it is ready to take 
off, but do not pull it off, cut the stem about three inches from the melon, as this 
avoids any tendency to rot at the stem end. They can be laid in sand and cover- 
ed with weeds or straw or laid away in a shed, but never on top of another. 
When first taken from the vine, the rind is crisp and very hard; after four to five 
weeks there is less crispness to the touch and a slight giving way to pressure, 
but anything like softness indicates over-ripeness. This melon should become 
more popular than the Rocky Ford, because it is more delicious and it is a Christ- 
mas melon. All our customers should give this a trial. Pkt. 10c. Oz. 20c.

Bolgiano's Cold Mountain Spring Watermelons 

171. Several years ago -we were spending our vacation in the mountains, during our absence one of the leading Watermelon growers, living 
about 100 miles from Baltimore, wrote us he had for a number of years been developing an extra, selected strain of Watermelon, and the results of 
his efforts had gone far beyond anything he had ever hoped to produce. Were we interested? He shipped us several samples, these came on boat to 
Baltimore 100 miles, then on the railroad through the mountains for 250 miles. Reaching tis in perfect condition after traveling 350 miles, through 
rough country and roughly handled. These Melons attracted the attention of everyone by their beautiful deep green color, stately size andexcellent 
shape. We had them on exhibition, then took them with us back into the mountains. We put the melons in a Cold Mountain Spring and 
in a few hours we cut them. The Melons were in perfect condition. "Red to the Rind," and entirely free from stringiness. We immediately 
inspected and purchased the crop. The Cold Mountain Spring Watermelon is a winner as a shipper, asa table Melon and as a Money

Enormous "Chinese Giant" Peppers 

Double the Size of Ruby King Peppers, One of the Largest Mild Red Peppers 
_ 226. Chinese Giant is very productive for so larce a pepper, while its enormous 
size and magnificent appearance make it sell most readily. The plants are vigorous in 
growth but of stocky habit, seldom more than two feet in height. They are well 
branched and thickly set with enormous fruits. Frequently half a dozen peppers will 
touch each other, as if on a single bunch. The strong growth of plants enables them 
to mature the gigantic fruits only slightly later than our well-known Ruby King. 

Chinese Giant produces uniformly monstrous peppers of thick blocky form and 
most brilliant glossy scarlet. They grow 4 to 5 inches broad at the top and are of equal 
length, divided into four or more large ridges; when ripe they are indented at the blos- 
som end. The first fruits setin a cluster of three to five at base of the plant, and are 
generally longer than those setting later on the upper branches, although the latter are 
equally as broad. All are uniformly of most " enonnous" size. The flesh is extremely 
mild — as sweet as an apple — and unusually thick. It makes an excellent salad sliced 
and ser\'ed like tomatoes. The true seed of a selected strain — producing untfoiinly large 
fruits — will always be high in price. Beware of "cheap" seed. Pkt. 10c. Ji Oz. 15c.

1029. By crossing our Extra Earl.v Alaska Peas with our Long 
Podded Alaska Peas we have secured this wonderful new Pea — it has 
developed the good qualities of both parents and is sure to become 
very popular as soon as its great value becomes known. It is as 
early as the extra early Alaskas, pods as long as the Long Podded 
Alaskas. A magnificent thrifty, vigorous grower, it is literally 
loaded with handsome pods which retain their fresh showy color we believe 
longer in shipment than either of its parents. Being an entirely new blooded 
stock it is very uniform in growth. For three years we have been growing 
"The Hustlers" just to accumulate seed stock and each j-ear we have been 
forced to value higher the vast money making possibilities that are in this 
pea, for both market gardeners and Southern shippers. It is also a very 
successful variety for the home garden. The beautiful rich green seed peas 
will justly lead you to expect great things of "The Hustlers." We have

3. Yields from 250 to 350 bushels per acre of most 
attractive, marketable Potatoes. 

4. Always brings 50c more per barrel than the 
fanciest stock of any other variety on the market. 

5. The quality is delicious, the entire supply is 
quickly taken up by the most critical hotel trade in 
New York and Boston.

to disease. 

7. Seed grown in the most careful manner. 

8. If you are a Potato grower and once saw the 
Plucky Baltimore Potato, you could not help but 
buy it. Its attractive shape, pure white color, and in 
fact its general appearance speaks for itself far better 
than we can write about it. 

9. We have the entire supply of this Grand New- 
Potato, and that's not many barrels, so order right 
now, or our supply will be exhausted. 

10. We can recommend the Plucky Baltimore 
as the best Potato that has ever been sold the 
truckers. Extremely attractive, extraordinarily 
early, enormously productive, excellent quality, pure 
white and a Big Money Maker.

Ckas. S. Gleason. St. Mary's Co., Md., writes: 
"Your 'Plucky Baltimore^ Potatoes are the earliest I 
have ever grown, it is a sood yielder, of excelletit 
quality, as well as a good keeper. I will grow no other 
variety.'^ 

Does Well In Bad Season 

ATr. James T. Crew, of Kent Co., Aid., writes as 
follows; "Although this Season was far from a favor- 
able one for Potatoes, I planted one bag of your 
'Plucky Baltimore' Potatoes from which I got 175 three- 
peck baskets as fine Potatoes as I ever saw." 

Best Ever Dug Out Of Ground 

Michael Dauber, Catonsville, Aid., uirites: "Your 
'Plucky Baltimote' Potatoes are the best Potatoes that 
were ever dug out of the ground. Iti earliness, size, 
color a7id yield they are perfect. When cooked they 
are like a lump of flour."

No Potato Will Do But "Plucky Baltimore" 

Mr. John Delhi, Grange, Md., wtites: "I have found your 'Plucky Baltimore' Potato lobe 
a money maker. I have used it for three years and again want 10 barrels for my next crop. 
My customers don't want anything but 'Plucky Baltimore.' " 



Gray's "Mortgage Lifter" Potato 



Mr. Gray has grown several bumper crops of Gray's "Mortgage Lifter" Potatoes; he says they were so large they reminded him of young pigs, and 
they were certainly splendid sellers at high prices. We wish every one of our customers who grow potatoes could talk with the growers who have 
grown a crop of this Grand New Potato. It certainly is something to marvel at, and yet if all of our customers realized its great value our limited 
supply would not be a drop in the bucket. It is an early variety, maturing a little later than the Crown Jewel; it is a pure white, large, handsome 
size, distinctive in shape, being long, well filled and tapering at both euds. Eyes are strong and well set, not too deeply, however. 

It certainly is a beauty and one grower says they grow so large it don't take many to fill a barrel, no culls, and by the carload they broughtover 
$20 a car more than the best Potato on the market. Mr. Prevatt, of Seville, Fla., after giving this Grand Potato a thorough trial, orders eight barrels 
in the place of one he planted last year. Mrs. Wm. G. Harvey, of Roslyn, Md., calls it the "Farmers Favorite." Among other names it was called 
are "Maryland Beauty," Money-Maker, " "Virginia Wonder," "The Excelsior," "Gold Standard," "Silver King," etc. We finally selected Gray's 
"Mortgage Lifter" as suggested by Mr. Jas. T. Gray, of Grange, Md., because Mr. Gray actually paid off a good size mortgage on his farm with the 
proceeds from the Wonderful Crop of this Grand New Potato which he grew this year, and we hope that the misson of Gray's "Mortgage I,ifter" 
Potato will not be ended until it has helped to clear many more farms of their mortgages. Pk. 50c. Bus. $1.85. Bbl. $4.50.

Prosperity Potatoes 

T/te Best Second Early and Main Crop 
Potato on Earth. 

This Magnificent Potato has become the most 
IKJpular middle crop poiatoof thenewervarieties, 
and certainly one of the most worthy. Yields 
great crops of even, fine, smooth large Potatoes, 
even under the most unfavorable circumstarces, 
andean be relied upon to bring in good money. 
It is undoubtedly the handsomest Ixtrge potato 
ever produced, and ■will out yield any other Potato 
and practically every Potato of Marketable size. 
It is ahead of all others in yield and smoolhness, 
and is of excellent quality. Every farmer will, 
after giving this most wonderful Potato a trial, 
discard every other kind and plant nothing but 
Bolgiano's Prosperity Potato for his main crop. 
It grows a very strong, upright top with darkcot- 
ored stalks and purple blossoms, and is very little 
affected by drought, blight or bugs. The flesh is 
as white as snow, and cooks dry and mealy. The 
eyes are even with the surface, the skin white 
with rich yellowish-creamy cast, and considerably 
ruffled or netted. This Potato will astonish old 
Potato-Growers in its abundant yields and fine 
Qualities, and every person who is ambitious to 
make the most money out of his crop cannot af- 
ford to let this year pass without obtaining seed 
of our crop of New Prosperity Potato. Pk. 50c.

Bolgiano's New Extra Early Seed Potato 

The great success of this New Potato is assured from the wonderful 
reports we have received from a large number of expert potato growers 
who tried it last year. It has produced most excellent results in all kinds 
of soil. It is not only early but it is a heavy producer of potatoes of the 
very finest texture and quality. "Trust Buster" Potatoes are vigorous 
growers and prolific yielders of handsome, smooth potatoes, creani white 
in color. These potatoes are uniform in size, color, excellent quality and 
fine flavor. They are quickly prepared for cooking as the skin peels 
readily and they cook dry and mealy. The table qualities areunequalled. 
Being the second year we have catalogued "Trust Buster" Potatoes our 
supply is necessarily limited. But to avoid disappointment please send 
in your order as early as possible. We are so anxious forj'ou to try this 
Best of All Potato this season. Pk. 65c. Bu. $2.00. Bbl.^$5.00.

found your Plucky Baltiinore a fine producer and an abundant yielder . / 
must say that all of the seeds I have ever gotten from you were entirely 
satisfactory." 

Isn't This A Fine Letter? 
On Jan. 1st. 1913. Mr. S. M. Schwartz, of Orange Co., Fla.. writes: " We 
always hear from kicks and complaints but seldom from appreciation and 
compliments, so I am going to give you a few words of cheer and co^nfort. 
The seed ordered from you arrived in good shape and the neatness and sys- 
tem in which tlie packages were put up deserved a compliment. Few days 
before receipt of seed I was asked by my wife if I had ordered some Tomato 
seed. I had to confess I had forgot to do so but on receipt of the packageof 
seed we found that you added complimentary a package of Tomato seed so 
you can imagine how much itwas appreciated. iVe all swear by Bolgiano's 
Seed."

has always brought much better prices than any other Onion in the 
market; it never fails to attract attention on account of its beauty; on 
the city stalls it has completely taken the place of the large Spanish 
Onions. The prizetaker Onion is gifted with .strong drought resisting 
ability, and we consider this one of its strong merits. People who wish 
to make money should plant the Prizetaker Onion. It is admitted by

Culture. Beans are somewhat tender, but it often pays to take some risks. Plant in warm, loamy soil at the beginning of settled, warm weather iu 
spring, and at intervals for succession until August. Rows may be made 2 feet apart, and the Beans planted not more than 2 inches deep and several inches 
apart in the drills, or 3 or 4 Beans in hills 6 to 8 inches apart. Cultivate and hoe frequently, always, however, when the vines are perfectly dry. In hoeing 
draw the soil up towards the rows or plants. For String Beans gather the pods clean as fit for use. The plants will remain all the longer in bearing.

Our beet is carefully gro7vn from the very best stock seeds in the world. In addition to this, 

we take out of the ground each Beet and examine it caj'efully if the color is not a fine dark 

red. and is not pejfect in shape, and if it is late in 7naturing, we ti'itl destroy it as 

7i'e only save our seed fro7ji as near pejfect roots as it is possible to grow. 

Culture. Fibrous loam, well drained and well enriched, will raise good Beet crop. For 

early table Beets, have drills 16 to 20inches apart, and sow the seed about 1 inch deep, as early 

as the ground can be put in good shape. Or seed may be sown under glass four weeks sooner, 

and the young seedlings transplanted to open ground, to give an extra early crop. Give 

thorough and clean cultivation, and thin the plants to stand 3 to 4 inches apart in the rows. 

For succession sow at intervals until the middle of July. For the earliest sowings a light 

dressing of nitrate of soda, say 100 pounds per acre, will sometimes work wonders. 

295. "Bon Fire" Bolgiano's New Early Beet. (.Specialty, see page 13.) A splendid 
new variety especially adapted for market gardeners, being suited for forcing under glass 
and for open ground culture. It is perfectly globe-shape and very early maturing, some 
days before Crosby's Egyptian. The leaf, stalks and single, tiny tap root are very small, 
making it valuable for both early and late sowing in frames. The skin is smooth, the flesh 
is very sweet, solid and an intense bright red in color. For home garden this Beet will 
be found desirable as it retains its freshness and high quality without becoming tough.

Bolgiano 's High-Bred American Grown Cabbage Seed 

Will Produce the Best Crop You Have Ever Grown. 

Chotj Ber:;o de Repello IRobI 

Pkts., O^s. and K Lbs. Delivered Free, but add 8c to Lbs. One Oz. will produce about 2-500 plants. K I^. to transplant/or one acre. 

iVo vegetable is of greater imporiatice to the market garde^ier than the Cabbage, and to mayiy growers tlie success 07-faUure of this crop means gain or 
loss for tlie year. Cabbage seed, tlieref ore, is tlie last seed in tlie list to buy because it is cheap. Mifh of tlie seed sold at a low price is imported front 
European countries wtiere, owing to tlie cli/nate, it produces large Quantities of seed: but it is p> actically cvortliless iyi A merica. We excercise exceptional care 
in growing and selecting our Cabbage seed. It is all high-bred American-grown, exupt such varieties as slwuld be grown abroad to get tlie best results 
such as tlie Dan ish Ball Head. 

Cnltnre. Soil for Cabbage should be rich and heavy loam, with good drainage. On such a soil, tvith an abundance of stable manure, excellent crops 
are sure to be grown. For early spring, sow in fall not too early, or the plants are liable to bolt in the spring, instead of heading. In a month the plants 
■will be fit to transplant to cold frames where they are wintered, taking care in planting, to set the young plants down to the firstleares. Transplant in 
spring as soon as the ground can be worked, setting the plants 2 feet apart one way and from 12 to 18 inches the other, according to the variety. For late or 
winter crops, the seed is sown in May, and the plants set out in July. In this case they are set in rows 2 by 3 feet, so as to work them with a horse and 
cultivator. To destroy the green worm, an experienced gro-sversajs: "Take one ounce of saltpeterand dissolve it in 12 quartsof water, then take ashort- 
handled whisk broom, dip in the solution and sprinkle the plants well. One application is sufficient, unless the stuS is washed off by heavy rains. The 
liquid being perfectly clear, never colors the cauliflower or Cabbage heads." 

Extra Early Cabbage 

25. Bifi 'Vriimcr 'Waliefield. (Specialty, page 14.) We in- 
troduced this remarkable cabbage eiijhtyears ago. It met with 
a hearty reception from everj' one who grew it. Every year we 
receive a great many letters of praise and congratulation regard- 
ing the Big Winner Wakefield Cabbage. Ko other Cabbage of 
which we have knowledge has aroused such enthusiasm among 
cabbage growers as has our Big Winner Wakefield. It has the 
same general characteristics of other Wakefield Cabbages, the 
heads being conical with a rounded or blunt point. Itis, however 
farsuperior to other strains of Wakefield Cabbage, being nearly 
double the size and better quality, and at the same time is fully 
as early. It has few outher leaves, permitting close planting, so 
that more heads can be grown to the acre than with other sorts.

other extra early cabbage. The outer leaves are so few and so 
small that they can be planted very close. The heads are compact 
and solid from the time a head is formed and keeps so until thor- 
oughly matured, thus enabling extremely early cutting of small 
hard heads, or later when the Wakefield comes in, of large, thor-

ers. Our stock of Wakefield is the earliest in cultivation. Every 
Cabbasre grower should use our Wakefield. Our seed is ordered 
by large Cabbage growers long in advance of the time of sowing

v\-ith well-developed outside leaves, but is very much earlier in 
maturing than any of the Danish Cabbages, and makes for us a 
very fine second-early variety, coming in about two weeks later

Cauliflower S^^^^^ 

tgi ,, ! One ounce of sccdwill produce about 3000 plants. 

One-half ouncefurnislied at oitnce rates, and one-half pound furnished 
at pound rates. 

CULTURE. For earliest Cauliflower, raise plants by so-n-ing in 
hotbed or greenhouse during January or February-, and transolant 
to flats or cold frames, 2 or 3 inches apart each waj-. Set in open 
ground as soon in spring as the land can be put in good order. Soil 
to be a -n-ami, very rich, fibrous loam, well supplied with humus and 
moisture. Copious water application duringdry weather, especially 
when the plants are heading, and light dressing of nitrate of soda 
and potash are of much help. Set plants 2 to 2/i feet apart each way. 
For late Cauliflower to mature during the pickling season (August 
15lh to October 10th) start plants in open ground like late cabbages, 
and handle them like that crop. After the heads begin to form, 

draw leaves over and pin or tie them together to protect the head

clover and broken the year before. For earliest crop, sow seed of the earl.v, short-rooted sorts in April or May, in drills n foot apart and thin to 2 inches. 
For main crop, sow in May or June, or for succession e%'en in July, using the long rooted varieties. The rows for these may be 16 to 20 inches apart, and the 
plants thinned to 2, 3 or even 4 inches. To raise Carrots for stock, the rows ma.v be made wide apart, say 2 to 2/'2 feet, to allow of cultivation by horse 
power. In sowing Carrot or other small seeds, especially during dry weather, pains should be taken to firm the soil well over the seed, either by means of 
the feet or with the roller of the garden drill.

Craltnre. One ounce will produce about twenty-five hundred plants and sow about two 
hundred feet of row. Sow the last of March or early in April, in an open border, in rich mellow 
ground in shallow drills, watering freely in dry weather. By rolling- or pressing in the seed, 
the result will be more satisfactory than when only covered. Cut the tops off once or twice be- 
fore planting out. to make them stocky. When the plants are 5 or 6 inches high, transplant 
the dwarf varieties 3 feet and the taller sort 4 feet between the rows; plant 6 inches apart in the 
rows. Cultivate well and when large enough, blanch by earthing up. The first operation is 
that of "handling," generally done by the beginning of September. After the soil has been 
drawn up with the hoe, it is drawn around each plant by the hand to keep the leaves firm in 
upright position and prevent spreading. When the plants have become "set" in an upright 
position and the Celery is wanted for early use, they should be "banked." This is done by 
throwing the soil up as close to the plants as possible with a plow and finishing it with a 
spade, bringing the earth up nearly to the tops of the plants. The method employed now for 
protecting it is by covering the tops of the banks with water proof felt paper,

Cnliiire. Seed of the sweetest varieties is 
liable to rot if planted in wet or cold ground. 
Yet if we have an early warm spell in Spring, 
it may pay us to take some risks. Often the 
plants when once up, will escape injury by a 
belated light frost. Plant in warm soil 5 or £ 
kernels to a hill making the rows 3 feet apart 
for the dwarfer early sorts and 4 feet apart 
for the taller late sorts. Hills to be 2 to 3 feet 
apart in the rows, thin out to three plants in 
a hill. Hoe often and draw soil up to the 
stem, break offside shoots. 

To have the finest Sweet Com, it must be 
picked in just the right condition; that is 
when the skin of the gain breaks at the 
slightest pressure, and plantings should be 
made frequently enough to have a supply at 
this stage. The quality will be inferior if il 
is either a few days too old or too young.

1068. Peep-o-Day. The two points to this remarkable Corn are its ex- 
traordinary earlinessand unparalelled sweetness. So marked is its sweetness 
and delicacy of flavor that many of our customers plant Peep-o-Day exclu- 
sively, arranging the plantings a few days apart so as to have this delicious 
Corn throughout the season. It is wonderfully productive. Ourcropsfor 
three years almost double the yield per acre of any other variety we have 
grown, early or late. Incredible as this may seem, it is readily accounted 
for by the fact that the stalks bear from 3 to 5 ears each and the growth 
being dwarf — about 4 feet — admits of a very close planting. Prices: Pt. 15c.

CULTURE. For very early, sow in hotbeds upon pieces of sod, or in small pots, they can be readily transplanted with a gain of about six weeks 
before they can be sown in the open. Plant out in rich soil when danger of frost is over, or protect by hand glasses; or by paper held down at the comers 
with earth. For general crops sow in the open as soon as the weather is settled and warm, and every two weeks for a succession. For pickles sow from 
middle of June to Fourth of July. Sod land, turned over in the fall, is the best for them. Plant in hills 4 feet apart, putting a shovelful of well rotted man- 
ure in each hill.

improved by frost. Sow from May to June, and cultivate the same as cabbage. For early Spring use sow in Sep-

horse dung, free from straw and litter and mix an equal bulk of loam from an old pasture with it. Keep this 

under cover, taking care to turn it every day to prevent it from heating, until the pile is large enough to make a bed 

of the required size. Three or four feet wide, eight inches deep and any length desired are the proper proportions tor 

tm-Wmm a bed. but this may be varied. Prepare the mixture of loam and manure, making the bed in layers and pounding 

""H^-Wf MtK down each with the back of a spade. Leave this to heat through for a few days, and as soon as the heat subsides to 90

will be poor, and they wilt not be so 
early. IVhen there is no 7nore danger 
of frost drop 8 to 10 seeds in h ills 8 to 
10 feet apart each way, covering about 
a inch deep. As soon as plants com- 
mence to run, thin out to 3 best plants 
in a hill, and cultivate until the vines 
cover the whole ground. If slow to 
fruit, pinch off the ends of the growing 
shoots. Ash or air-slaked lime sifted 
on tlie young plants while dew is on is 
good to keep insects out. One ounce

Culture. Any good well drained, fibrous loam will 
produce Potatoes under right climatic conditions. For 
early Potatoes, which mature in 8 to 10 weeks from plant- 
ing, the soil must be particularly rich. A rich clover sod, 
manured and broken the year before and planted to corn, 
beans, peas, oats, etc., is in best shape forgiving a good 
yield of nice, clean Potatoes. Stable manure had better 
be applied to the land the j'ear before, while some good 
complete fertilizer, at tlie rate of up to lOuO pounds per 
acre if applied broadcast, or 400 to 600 pounds if applied 
mostly in the rows, may be used directly for the Potato 
crop. Open furrows 3 ft. apart and 3 to 4 inches deep. 
Apply the fertilizer, and run tns furrower or small plow 
again in the furrow to mix the fertilizer with the soil and 
leave a mellow seedbed. Then plant good-sized pieces, 
each containing not less than 2 or 3 eyes, 15 inches apart 
in the furrows for early Potatoes, and 18 inches apart for 
late ones. In some of the large Potato sections the Pota- 
toes are always planted in check rows of 3 feet apar. each 
way. Cover with coverer, small plow or other suitable 
tool. Cultivate often. Spray with Bordeaux Arsenate of 
Lead Mixture as a protection from flea beetle, potato 
beetle and blight. 8 to 10 bushels will plant an acre.

that grow. One ounce of seed will produce from 3,000 to 4.000 plants. 
Culture. For first early Tomatoes select varieties of the earliest types, and start the plants under glass during February. When plants are 2 inches 
high, transplant into fiats, thumb pots or plant boxes, and later on transplant again, giving more room. Never crowd the plants, but keep them short and 
stocky. Plants already in bloom or with fruit set, if in wooden plant boxes or in pots may be transplanted to the open ground without disturbing their 
roots, and will continue to bloom and fruit without check. Set these sorts 4 feet apart each way in warm, mellow soil of fair fertility as soon as danger from 
belated frost is past. For main crop, the plants can be started somewhat later, iu hotbed or cold frame, once transplanted to keep them stocky, and then 
set in open ground, in fairly good warm soil, 5 feet apart each way. A very ornamental show can be made in the home garden by training tomato plants 
to stakes, poles or trellis. Application of superphosphate, or of some good complete (vegetable) fertilizer often have a very happy effect on Tomatoes in 
hastening maturity and increasing the yield.

Grass and Clover Seed Mixtures for Hay and Pastures 

These Mixtures give the very best and most satisfactory results to customers, and our trade in them is increasing rapidly. The advantage of sovring 
grasses and clover seed in mixtures has long- been recognized and the practice is increasing to a very remarkable extent throughout the South. We are the 
pioneer seedmen m Baltimore in putting up special mixtures for different soils, and the results to our customers have been exceedingly satisfactory, result- 
*°w° i?''*^'^,.'"'^'^'''^*^^ crops both of hay and pasturage. We will take pleasure in advising our customers as to suitable grasses for their soils and purposes. 

We have the follotnng mi:£tures combined grasses suitable for the various soils and uses for which they are recommended. Those for permanent 
pastures are composed of grasses which succeed each other in growth, and give a succession from the first of spring until late in winter, while for those de- 
sired more for cutting for hay have combined grasses which ripen together. In all onr mixtures we are introducing small quantities of Alfalfa 
Clover with the idea of inoculating the land with Alfalfa bacillus. Alfalfa revolutionizes farming but the bacillus must be established before the revolu. 
tion can occur. The different mixtures are prepared both as to quantity and varieties as best adapted to the soils and situations for which they are 
recommended. In all of our grass mixtures we use the very best seeds; the quality and purity of our seeds being our first consideration. The quantity 
handled enables us to give our customers the benefit of a very low price, even lower than if they purchased the seed separately.

The Plain Truth About Grades 

The terms Fancy, Choice, Prime and Fair, by which different grades of 
Grass and Clover Seeds are usually known, have become so much abused by 
some dealers who apply these tei-ms indiscriminately to any quality of seed 
that we many years ago established two grades of our own, called "Gold" 
and "Silver.' 

J. Bolgiano & Son "Gold" Grade we intend shall invariably represent the 
best seed o'jtainable, both as respects purity and high germination. Anyone 
who buys our Gold grades may return them at our expense, if, upon receipt 
and examination, they are found in any respect unsatisfactory, and money 
paid for same, w^ill be promptly refunded. 

Silver, the next best grade to Gold, but not quite the same purity. It 
frequently happens that the demand is greater than the supply of Gold 
grades, as but a small proportion of the total seed gathered will make Gold; 
we then recommend our Silver grade as being the best in the market. 

We wish to call attention to the fact that in cleaning seed so as to make 
our Gold and Silver grades, there is much seed removed which, while not of 
sufficient high quality to grade Gold and Silver, is suitable for seed, and 
this is sold under lower grades, such as Fancy, Choice, Prime, etc. We do 
not quote these grades in our catalogue as the most of our sales are for Gold 
and Silver grades. 



Grasses 



Please Read Carefully 

Prices on Grass. Clover and Millet seed fluctuate so greatly that it is im- 
possible for anyone to accurately gauge future values. 

Write us for our special prices when you are ready to buy. For the benefit 
of those who wish to order early, we quote the prices that are in effect at the 
time of going to press with this catalogue, on our Gold and Silver grades 
only. These prices will be maintained as long as possible, but we reserve 
the right to forward seed to the value of the money sent us, according as the 
market is higher or lower. We wish to assure those who bu v late in the 
season and have not time to write us for prices, that they wil"- j-eceive fair 
treatment at our hands, and unless otherwise advised we will red uce or add 
to the quantity ordered sufficient seed to give value for the amount of money 
remitted. We cannot emphasize the fact too strongly to those who do not

1123. Tall Meadow Oat< Evergreen Grass. Yielding twice as much 
hay as Timothy or Orchard Grass, early as Orchard Grass with more leaf 
and affording better grazing, it is not strange that this grass is becoming .so 
popular. It will keep green all winter and all summer; the drought of mid- 
summers or the cold of winter does not injure it. It starts growing very 
early in the Spring, can be cut twice for hay, would yield good grazing until 
late in the Fall. It contains more flesh and muscle-forming material than 
Timothy, but it is not so fattening. F'or hay, it should be cut while in 
bloom. Tall Meadow Oat Grass is best adapted for rather light and dry 
loamy uplands, but gives excellent results on nearly all soils and better re- 
sults than any other grass on light, medium soils. Sown alone use 2 to 3 bus. 
to the acre, either Spring or Fall. Sown in mixture, use 1 bus. (11 lbs ) Tall 
Meadow Oat Grass 1 bus. (14 lbs.) Orchard Grass and 8 lbs. Red Clover. It 
gives the very best results when sown with Clover. By adding 6 lbs. of Red 
Top or Herd's Grass to the mixture the grazing will be materially increased 
Price: "Gold" Brand Fancy S2 00 bus. "Silver" Choice $1.85 bus. 

1186. Sheep Fesque. A densely tufted perennial grass, roots deeply 
and forms dense short turf, furnishes excellent grazing. Sow 2 to 3 bus 
per acre, if sown by itself. Sow about 25 pounds per acre. Price: "Gold'

Sw^eet Vernal. Excellent for mixture in lawns for its sweet perfume, 
also in all Hay and Pasture mixtures as it is relished by all cattle and horses. 
Lb. 50c. 



1114. Orchard Grass One of the best and most reliable grasses for the 
Middle and Southern States, either for hay or pasture. It succeeds well on 
nearly all soils, but does best on uplands, lo.imy or moderate stiff soils. It 
starts early in the spring and continues well into winter. It is of quick 
growth, and is relished by stock, especially when young and bears close 
grazing. It makes excellent hay, and gives the very best results mixedaud 
grown with Tall Meadow Oat Grass and Red Clover. It should be cut when 
in blossom, as the hay is injured if the seed is allowed to ripen. It can be 
sown in the spring or fall, either with grain or alone. Sow two bus. per- 
acre if sown alone, orwith Red Clover, one and one-half bus. of Orchard 
Grass and eight pounds of Clover are the quantities usually shown. Price:

^g'The prices lierein are based on values at time of going to press with this catalogue S''^^ 
They are subject to market fluctuations. 
1117. T^imnfhv of Hay Grasses Timothy is one ot the most popular nutritious and salable. 
1 limjLHy On clay or heavy loams, lowlands or in mountamous districts, provided 
there is an abundance of moisture, it produces tlie very best results. On sandy or light loamy 
ground, it does not do so well as Orchard, Tall Meadow Oat or Ktd Top Grass. If grazed or cut 
too close, tlie stand of Timothy will be seriously injured, besides it does not form as good grazing 
as many other grasses. From V/i to 3 tons of fine hay to the acre. Timothy alone a peck (11 lbs.) 
to the acre or with clover 10 lbs. Timothy and 6 lbs. Clover. A splendid mixture is 8 lbs. Timothy 
6 lbs. Clover (either Mammoth Clover or Alsike Clover preferred as they mature at the same time 
as Timothy) 6 lbs, Fancy Red Top, Vz bu. Meadow Fesque. Together these will produce most 
excellent hay, also nutritious and abundant pasture in good loamy clay or low ground soils, 8 
lbs. Timothy and 6 lbs. Clover when sown togetlier. Price; "Gold" Brand, 15c lb. Pk. 85c. Bu.of 
451bs.,S3.00. "Silver" Choice $2.90. Market fluctuates. 

1118. Kentucky Blue Grass. This makes the best, sweetest and most nutritious pasture 
for all kinds of stock. Kentucky has long been famous for its high bred horses and its Blue 
Grass pastures. It is now possible to establish on Kost any farm a Blue Grass Pasture of green- 
est verdure which will give very profitable returns. This grass is the first to start up in thespring 
and remains green until snow flies in the fall. It is very hardy and is iminjured \>\ cold or dry 
weather, hot sun or tramping of hoofs. The roots are so thick and stout that they form a tough 
sod. Blue Grass requires about two years to get -well started and for that reason it is often sown 
in mixture with other grasses. It will do well on almost any land. Sow in the fall or spring at 
therateof two or three bushels per acre. Price, ' Geld ' Brand Seed, lb. 15c. Pk.65c. Bu.of

1120. Canada Bine Grass. Resembles somewhat the Kentucky Blue Grass. It Trill thrive 
even on hard clay soil and having an excellent root development forms a hea^'y turf. At the 
Maryland Experiment Station this gra.ss remained a luxuriant green during the hottest summer 
■when other grasses were materially affected by the heat. Being a glass of Canadian growth it 
stands the cold weathor admirably. Canadian Blue Grass should be tried by everyone not 
familiar with its excellrnt qualities. It is particularly well suited for mixtures. Price, "Gold" 
Brand Seed, lb. 15c. Pk. 50c. Bu. of 14 lbs., $1.50. "Silver" Choice, Si. 40. 

1111. Red Top, or Herd's Grass. This grass makes excellent pasturage and good crop of 
fine quality hay, and succeeds on a greater variety of soils than any other in general use, giving 
very good results on light soils, and the very best results on heavier, moist or low ground soils. 
It is rather late in starting in spring, and matures its crop the same time as Timothj'. Is excel- 
lently adapted for seeding with Timothy for hay, and furnishes excelknt pasturage afterward. 
When it gets well established it spreads, and will gradually supplant other grasses. Our Gold 
Brand of the Fancy Clean Red Top is of extra fine quality, and carefully cleaned from impurities. 
We can also furnish the Choice and Prime Fancy Bed Top as usually sold. It requires about 8 to 
10 pounds to seed an acre of the Fancy Clean seed. When sowing with Timothy, sow 6 pounds of 
the Fancy Clean seed and 8 pounds Timothy per acre. It can be sown either in the spring orfall. 
Crop extremely short. Price, "Gold" Brand Fancy Seed, lb., 35c. 10 lbs or over (5' 3Cic lb. "Silver"

1122. Meadow Fesqne, Randall or Eniilisli Bine Grass. It makes a most excellent hay 
and pasturage grass and is parlicularly valuable forfall and winter pasturage, as it remains green 
throughout the winter. It is also a splendid spring and summer grass and usually makes more 
and thicker leafage than any other grass. Grows 2 to 3 feet high but not in tufts like Orchard 
Grass. The hay is very nutritious and cattle thrive on it whether dry or green. Succeeds even 
Brand Southern Grown Geiman Millet in poor soil, and as the rcxjts penetrate deep, from 12 to 15 inches, it takes extremely dry weather 

to affect it. It succeeds well in nearly all sections of the South, and should be very largely used 
for pasturage and hay mixture, being specially suitable for sowing with Red Top and Timothy for hay, or w ith these and Orchaid and Tall Meadow Oat 
for permanent pasturage. Sow .either in the spring or fall at the rate of 2 bushels to the acre if sown by itself. W hen sown with Red Top or Timothy sow 
1 bushel (14 lbs.) Meadow Fesque, 5 lbs. Fancy Clean Red Topand 6 lbs. Timothy peracre. Sown for a grazing mixture with Orchard and Tall Meadow 
Oat Grass, add half a bushel each of these two grasses. Price "Gold" Brand lb. 25c. Pk. Sl.OO. Bu. of 24 lbs. about $3.50.

hay grasses. On account of their quick, early growth they should be a constituent part of nearly all hay and pasturage mixtures. 

1121. English or Perennial Rye Grass. This is becoming well known in this country as a valuable pasture grass which will bear frequent close 
cropping. Produces an abundance of foliage, which remains bright and green during the season. The hay is relished by all kinds of stock. It will grow 
well on almost any land, but does better on such land as will produce a good com crop. ^^Tien sown by itself sow 30 lbs. per acre either In the spring orfalL

Thrives on rich, m list land, where from 3 to 4 cuttings may be made in a season. It grows 
very quickly and will stand close pasturage. Will stand more overflow than other grass. About 
241bs. of seed to the acre. Price, "Gold" Brand, 15c lb. pk. 50c. Bu.of 18 lbs. Sl.50. lOOlbs. $7.00. 
1189 Creeping Bent Grass. Similar to Red Top or Herd's Grass and considered as good 
if not better th^in that variety. Distinctive on account of its compact, creeping, rooting 
stems, which hold in the soil in a very tenacious way. Of rapid growth and spreading habit, 
forming a strong, durable turf. Fine forlawns and putting greens because of its fine texture. 
If sown alone use 50 lbs. to the acre. Price, "Gold" Brand, lb. 35c. 

1188. Crested Dogstail. A hardy grass forming a smooth, compact and lasting turf. 
Does best on rich, moist land but will grow on most any soil. Roots deeply and withstands 
dry weather. Does well in the shade. If sown alone use 30 lbs. to the acre, but the best way 
is to mix it with other grasses. Price lb. 30c. 10 lbs, $2.80. 100 lbs. $25.00, 

1206. Rhode Island Bent Grass. Resembles Red Top, but is shorter and has narrower 
leaves. It ra ikes a beautiful, fine, close turf and one of thebest grasses for lawns. It does 
well on both rich and poor soils. Sow with other grasses, or if alone use 50 lbs. seed an acre. 
Lb. 35c. 

1116. Bromns Inemus or Awnless Broom Grass. Drought defying, frost resisting. 
Yields enormous crops of splendid hay and affords early and abundant pasturage. It adapts 
itself to almost every condition of soil and climate and to any use to which grass may be put, 
equaling in quality and rivaling in yield almost any other grass. The roots push through the 
soil and form fresh plants on evers' side. No amount of cold seems to be able to kill it. It 
bears up well under hot summer suns. It will grow under conditions that are very dry, and 
it can also stand being covered with water, not deep of course, for one or two weeks in early 
spring. It is an abundant producer of leaves and is much relished as pastureand hay. It is 
about equally nutritious with Timothy. This grass may be sown at any time of the year 
when the ground is bare, but the best season is in spring, and with or without a nurse crop. 
If sown with a nurse crop that crop should be so%vu thinly. 15 pounds of good Bromus 
Inermis an acre is sufficient. It grows slowly for a time, hence the farmer should not be 
hasty in concluding that he has failed to get a stand of the grass. Price, "Gold" Brand, 
25c lb. Pk. 65c. Bu., 14 lbs., $2.25. 

A'lillpt^ 1125. German or Golden MiUct, Sonthem Grown. Makes a large yield- 
i. IIIICLO jjjg. gjjj most nutritious hay crop, quick growingand easily cured. It should be 
seeded thickly, one bushel per acre, and should be harvested while in bloom. If the seeds are 
allowed to form the stalks get hard and it does not make so good a hay. Should be sown at 
any time between the middle of May until the end of June. It matures a crop in 6 to 8 weeks 
after seeding. Our Southern Grown Millet m.akes much better growth than Western or 
Northern grown seed. "Gold" Brand Fancy Southern Millet, Pk. 6Sc. $2.00 perbu. of 50 lbs.

Pure Cultures For Innoculating Legumes 



What Farmogerm Is 

FarmoKerm is a pure culture or growth of nitrogen- 
fixing bacteria that have been selected and bred up to 
transform large amounts of nitrogen from the air 
into soluble nitrates. These bacteria are grown in a 
jelly or tood, in which they remain active for long 
periods of time, and sent out in a bottle which admits 
the necessary supply of pure air, yet keeps out de- 
structive contaminations. If Alfalfa can be grown on 
hot, sandy land of South New Jersey why can't you 
£row it?

are a well-established certainty in all instances where inocula-

\Vhy not increase your farm yields without extra labor and at 
practically no extra cost? 

Farmogerm and Alfalfa in Maryland 

Oh September 12, 1911, Mr. S. N. Loose, Jr., of Washington Co., 
writes as follows: ' 'In regard to resitlis obtained by using your 
culture on the Alfalfa planted in September of last yenr, I beg to 
say same was very satisfactory and results obtained were very 
favorable. 

Increases the Production from 300 to 400 Per Cent 

Kinder Lou, Ga., January, 11, 1913. 
Gentlemen: I have had a big success this year by using your 
Farmogerm on pinders, peas, velvet beans and alfalfa. Tlie in- 
creasefrom its use was from HOO to 400 per cent. This makes my 
third year I have used it. In this time I have tested itfully every

What Farmogerm Will Do 

Unless the soil is very acid or wet Farmogen will: 

1. Increase the yield and quality of Alialia', 
Clover, Vetch, Cow Peas, Soja Beans, and other 
legumes, giving quicker growth and earlier ma- 
turity. 

2. Increase the food value of legumes. 

3. Make legumes grow ni new localities where 
they cannot otherwise be grown successfully. 

4. Supply nitrates to other crops growing with 
the inoculated legume crop. 

5. Enrich the soil for future crops, thereby in- 
creasing the permanent value of the farm. Better 
crops — better soil — less fertilizer — less labor. 




10 Soja Bean Plants, Inoculated 

Fertilizer Values 

of well inoculated legumes have long been determined. It is 
shown in Bulletin No. 71, issued by the U. S. Dept. of Agriculture 
that tests covering a large part of the country prove that legumes 
will deposit 1000 pounds of nitrates per acre. This means that 
your most expensive commercial fertilizer is absolutely unneces- 
sary when you plant legumes that are perfectly inoculated, sown 
and planted in properly prepared land. 

Peas, Beans, Sweet Peas 

yield earlier, longer and better when treated with Farmogerm- 
Farmogerm is endorsed by Farmers, Federal and State Agricul- 
tural Departments and private estates. It is delivered to you in 
bottles ready for use — you can inoculate the seed for ten acres 
in ten minutes. When ordering always state on what particular 
crop you desire to use Farmogerm so we will know what to send

Clover is a necessity on every farm and will add millions of dollars to the value of land and crops. 
I,ookinsf to the future, no time should be lost in introducing the bacilli of the Red and Alfalfa 
Clovers. The use of nitrocultures may tend to hasten their establishment, but nature's vray and 
the best way is to use a small quantity of seed, say a pound or two each Red and Alfalfa Clover to 
the acre, with whatever crop you are seeding. After awhile you have the prized bacilli in your 
land, then you may safely call your farm doubledin value from a producing standpoint. 
AlfP'lfpl SppH Alfalfa yields splendidly throughout the South, yielding 4 or 6 Cuttings per 
iT.liail« OCCU Year. Increasing Yield Each Successive Year. 

1128. Alfalfa ranks higher than Timothy hay in feeding value. In fact it might be termed both 
corn and hay, as it is almost a complete food. Experiment stations place the feeding value of 
Alfalfa hay at $20 per ton, as against timothy hay atSl2 per ton. This, with the fact that Alfalfa 
rill, under favorable circumstances, after a good stand is secured, give 4or 6 cuttings per year, and 
will easily yield on good land, 6 to 16 tons of splendid hay per year, shows what a valuable crop it 
L,and3in the Western States that are -well set in Alfalfa sell readily at from SlOO to $200 per acre; 
so that a crop of this kind pays for the little extra care and preparation given to secure good stands 
and good crops, better to have five acres well set in Alfalfa by thorough preparation than to attempt 
to put in 10 acres without first-class preparation. The acreageof Alfalfa is increasing veiy largely 
all over the Middle and Southern States, our farmers are fast beginning to realize what a %-aluable 
crop it is for this section. Alfalfa will succeed and do well on any good loamy, well-drained soil; 
but the land must be well and thoroughly prepared for the best results. The plant is rather slender 
when it first starts, and must be grown under favorable conditions in order to get ahead of the 
weeds and other grasses which would, under ordinary circumstances, spring up natvrally and 
check it or smother it out. Alfalfa shouldalways becut when just commencing tolDloo'.-. whether 
the plants be large or small. If the seed is allowed to form the groivth of the plant ceases. It should 
never be used for pasture, it is too valuable as ahay producer to risk injurs* from stock. Alfalfa 
can be sown either in the Spring or Fall. The requirements to obtain good stands and good crops 
is to sow in good, rich soil and give thorough preparation. A heavy application of lime is of de- 
cided benefit— 2,000 to 5,000 lbs. per acre. Alfalfa is usually sown broadcast at the rate of 20 to 30 lbs. 
to tlieacre, although some of our customers claim that thicker seedings give better crop results. 
JMarch and April are the best months for seeding in the Spring, and the latter part of August and 
during September the best in the fall. Our Alfalfa seed is the highest grade, strong germinating 
seed of the best and cleanest quality it is possible to procure. The quality and germination of the 
seed is a prime requisite for success with this crop. Land well set in Alfalfa is better than a bank

New Era Cow Peas. 43 Days After Planting 

1159. New Era. This new extra early Cow Pea is unquestionably 
one of the luost valuable varieties in ciiitivation. It is quicker in 
growth than any other Cow Pea in cultivation; makes a very large 
growth of vine and very prolific yield of Peas. The vines stand up- 
right, enabling the Peas to be easily gathered. The Peas are fully 
one-third smaller in size than any other Cow Pea, so that it does 
not require nearly as many to seed an acre. P/i~ase Write Us For 

326. Long White Cow-Horn Turnip 

It has been found by practical farmers that there is no better way 
of aerating andadding humus to the soil in the winter time than by 
sowing the Long White Cow-Horn Turnip. They can be fed to the 
stock as they are needed and the rest allowed to remain in the 
ground and rot, having a valuable fertilizing property and soil im- 
prover. They grow nearly half out of the groimd, are carrot-like in 
form, very imtritious, heavy cropper and fine keeper. Sow two 
pounds of seed to the acre, broadcast. Oz. 10c. V^ L,b. 15c. l,b. 35c.

The great soil improvers. Makes poor land rich. Makes Good land 

more productive. Also makes a splendid and nutritious 

green forage or hay crop, enriching the soil 

even when the crop is cut off. 

1175. Mixed Cow Peas. We sti-ongly recommend sowing Mixed Cow Peas 
as a soil improving crop. The upright growing varieties holding up the vining va- 
rieties, they will make much better growth and give more satisfactory results, yield- 
ing better crops of vines and more forage. They are composed of the Blacks, Black 
Eye. Clays, Whip-poor-wills, Wonderful, New Era and Soja Beans. If once tried 
you will sow no others where large crops are desired. Please Write Us For Prices.

1165. Canada Field Peas. Here is a crop which is not only profitable but will 
return to the l.ind the much needed nitrogen. Pe.ns are secotid only to Clover in' 
their soil enriching properties and can be grown under almost any condition of soil 
or climate. Tliere is always a ready market for peas, or they can be profitably 
ground and fed to the stock. The vines make rich, nutritious hay. If fed to milch 
cows, when in a green state, pods, vines and all. the flow of milk will be almost 
doubled. 

Peas are a paying crop and can be profitably planted in many ways. 

First. When .sown alone about three bushels are required to the acre. They 
can be matured and threshed when dry. The yield will vary from 30 to 60 bushels 
an acre. 

Second. Peas and oats are frequently sown together, using 15^ bushel of peas 
and 2 bushels of oats an acre. By so doing a double crop can be secured. They can 
be threshed at one time and readily separated in cleaning. 

Third. They can be sown alone or with oats and fed green. It is surprising 
the amount of fodder which is produced in this way. If sown together, the peas 
should be sown first and plowed under about four inches deep; the oats may then 
be drilled in. 

Fourth. For plowing tmder when peas and oats are .sown together and each are 
"in milk'' they are nearly equal in value to Clover, used in the same way to enrich 
the soil.

1156. Burt or 90-Day Oats. The earliest, most prolific and surest cropping of Spring Oats; far superior to an ordinary spring or rust-proof oats for 
spring seeding. Wherever this Oat is grown it comes into great favor. For a .Spring Oat for seeding in March and April it is the best and surest of Spring- 
Oats. It is earlier to mature, free from rust, healthy, clean and vigorous growth of straw, and makes a very good yield of clean, bright and heavy grain. 
On account of its earliness to mature, it escapes the dry hot weather we frequently experience in June, and is on this accoutit, one of the surest cropping- 
varieties of the .South. Color and appearance of grain somewhat resemble the rust-proof Oat. Pk. 35c. Bu. 85c. Please Write Us For Latest Prices. 

1161. "Virginia Gray "Winter or Turf Oats. When sown early, before the Middle of March, these oats will faroutyield the ordinary spring oats, making- 
a larger crop and heavier grain. For seed purposes, too, it is most desirable to sow winter oats in the spring, as they make a better and cleaner seed oats 
for sowing in the Fall than if continual seedings are made from the fall-grown oats. Further north than Virginia remarkable results have been obtained 
from these oats, when sown even as late as the first of May, and from the reports of our customers we strongly recotnmend these oats to our Northern and 
Western farmers, as we believe that they will give very much larger and better yielding crops than the spring oats usually sown in the Northern and 
Western States. Sow at the rate of Ij^ to 2 bushels per acre. Pk. 35c. Bu. 85c. Please

resiflts for two or three seasons past in this section and further South. It makes a quick 
growing crop of most excellent and nutritious green feed and is growing in popularity 
wherever it is used, and will also make a good grain crop, although its principal value is 
as an early nutritious forage crop, either to feed green or cure as hay. Sow V/i to 2 
bushels per acre. Price, Pk. 45c; $1.50 per bushel. Please Write Us For Market Prices. 

1135. Spring Rye. Distinct from the Winter Rye, grain of finer quality and more pro- 
ductive; can be successfully grown in any latitude, and is now being largely grown iu the 
Middle States in place of oats, being a much more profitable crop on account of the pro- 
duction of nearly four times the straw, and also as a "catch" crop where winter grain has 
failed. Produces 30 to 40 bushels of grain per acre. As it does not stool like Winter Rye_ 
not less than two bushels to the acre should be sown. Bu. $1.25. Please Write For Prices.

For a late Summer crop Buckwheat is very desirable and profitable, 
especially in mountainous sections. It is easily grown, mukessplendid 
flower food for bees and a large yield of grain, which can usually be sold for remunerative 
prices. As a smothering crop, where the land contains objectionable weeds, it is very de- 
sirable, and it puts the soil in admirable condition for crops to follow.

,_. ,^. Paeonies 

/ he King of Flowers. Hardy Everywhere. 

Once Planted they will last a lifetime. There is no hardy perennial which 
equals the Paeon y in beauty and usefulness. Once planted, the plants and 
flowers increase in size and beauty with age. They are as hardy as oaks and 
handsome (many as fragrant) as roses. When the plants are through bloom- 
ing they are as handsome and ornamental as mostof the hardy shrubs. The 
plants are practically immune from insects. No garden is complete without 
their charming influence. Paeonies may be planted during any of the 
spring months and from September 1 to October 10, An important point to 
observe is not to plant too deeply. The roots should be placed so that the 
crowns (or eyes) are covered with two or three inches of soil. Planting too 
deep is often the cause of shy blooming. We use great care in the selection

How To Feed Growing Chicks 

Feed by scattering about a pint of it on the floor in Bolgiano's "Square 
Deal" Alfalfa Meal for 25 chicks, where they will scratch for it. After they 
are 8 weeks old then feed them with Bolgiano's "Square Deal" Poul- 
try Food. 

"Square-Deal" Growing Mash 

Our Growing Mash is a mixture of whole, choice sweet grains with a little 
meat added, evenly balanced and ground together in such a manner as to 
promote the quickest possible growth. Feed dry and you will be surprised 
at the results. Poultry of all kind when fed dry feed eat very slowly, mix- 
ing it thoroughly with the saliva before swallowing. They cannot swallow 
it if they do not. The feed passes into the crop slowly, and is rapidly sali- 
viated with the strong digestive juices of this organ. 5 Lbs. 18c. 10 Lbs. 30c.

Bolgiano's "Square Deal" Beef Scraps or Meat Meal. For suc- 
cess with poultry it is absolutely necessary to give them plenty of animal 
food to take the place of insects, etc. , which they get when running free. 
For this purpose, ' 'Square-Deal" Beef Scraps are the best food that can be 
used. 5 Lbs. 25c. 10 lbs. 45c. 25 Lbs. SOc. 50 Lbs. $1.50. 100 Lbs. $2.90.

men, state experiment stations, and poultry judges endorse them. You can raise chicks any wherewith International 
Sanitary Hovers. No specially constructed houses are necessary. There is no better place than in your regular hen 
houses. 

Sanitary Hovers are as practical for the small back-yard poultry raiser as for large poultry farms. They are 
warmest at the curtain — u.sable anywhere — ready for business wherever placed. No crowding or smothering of 
chicks — no kneeling in mud to get at the lamp — no cutting of holes or building of platforms. You want the best 
brooding device — you will get it in the Sanitary Hovers. Price $8.50 each.

ShaU Want 12 More 

C. J?. Benjamin, Proprietor Yardniond Poultry 
Farm, Cranford, N. J., writes: Gentlemen: — Allow 
jne to congratulate you on the success of your San- 
itary Hover. After giving it a thorough test, I am 
so well satisfied that I shall want 12 more next sea- 
son. I have put as many as 100 chicks under one of 
your hovers and raised practically every one. An- 
other important feature is the ease with whichyour 
hover can be handled. 

Any time you have an inquiry over this way, 
refer the inquirer to me. / will be pleased to show 
him your hover in operation, C, R. Benjamin. 



This Exerciser Feeder is just what its name 
implies. It is a large hopper supported on 
four strong iron legs and devised toholdallthe 
food necessary for poultry. The center hopper 
holds the mixed grain food which is gener- 
ally composed of cracked corn, wheat, kaffir 
corn, buckwheat, barley, oats, etc., and is so 
constructed that a little agitator, which con- 
tains whole corn, as bait, can be worked by 
the fowls so that it will scatter broadcast a 
small amount each time, of the dry grain 
mixture. It gives the hens the necessary 
exercise hunting for the grain'- so that it is 
impossible to overfeed. Surrounding this center hopper are six compartments made to contain dry mash, 
beef scrap, grit, charcoal, oyster shells, etc. All are easily accessible for the fowls, and the machine is so 
constructed that none of the food can he wasted. The cover of the hopper is conical shapped so that the 
fowls cannot roost on it. This Exerciser Feeder has every advantage that can be found in an Exerciser 
of other makes. It eliminates all other feeding devices. Price 40 qt. S4.75; 20 qt. $3.75.

Water Glass 



Water Glass is the best preser\-ative for retain- 
ing the freshness in eggs. Use one part Water 
Glass to eleven parts water, mix well and put 
into a hard wood barrel or earthen crock. As fast 
as eggs are laid put them into this solution, keep-

(which is more practical than hot air) and will keep 
every egg in exactly the same temperature. It'sa self 
regulator for 21 days, it never changes or fails. The 
only thing you have to do is to keep the lamp filled 
and burning, and turn the eggs twice a day.

insulation of heavy building paper between the two 
walls insuring an absolutely uniform temperature in 
the Egg chamber regardless of the outside tempera- 
ture, each machine receives one coat of filler and two 
coats of varnish and when finished has the appear- 
ance of a fine piece of cherry furniture. 

Each machine is furnished with the following 
equipment: one tank, one lamp bowl, one burner

Buckeve Standards are made in four sizes to hold 110, 175, 250 and 350 hen eggs, orS5, 140, 200 and 
280 duck eggs. 

Buckeye St.andard Incubators are made of California Redwood exclusively on outside case which 
we know will withstand all kinds of atmospheric changes without the slighest danger of warping 
or pulling apart. 

The inside walls are made of seasoned yellow poplar which will also withstand all atmospheric 
changes regardless of conditions. 

The sides and top of each incubator consists of two walls of this lumber which is one inch thick 
with one inch of Fibre between the two thicknesses of lumber which, produces a case that is abso- 
lutely impervious to changes in outside temperature.

"Buckeye" Guaranteed Incubators, Brooders and Brood Coops 



"Buckeye" Brooders 

or The Secret of Chick Raising 

It is a matter of record that poorly constructed 
brooders are responsible for the death of niore 
chicks than any other one cause so we consider 
it most advisable to call particular attention to 
the importance of using a type of brooder that 
will property care for the chicks after they are 
hatched. 

Chicken raising- don't end with the hatching. 
The old hen provides a place where the chicks 
can get warm and another place toexcercise and 
eat. 

That's what we do in Buckeye Brooders. 

It's hardly fair to the old hen, but we must tell 
you that a good artifical brooder is better than 
she is. 

Chicks must have a certain kind of heat. 

That is— it must be just ' so warm" or they suffer. 

A temperature that is either too warm or too 
cold will produce bowel troubles and bowel trou- 
bles are bad for little chicks. 

In addition to this proper heat, they must 
have plenty of fresh air; if they don't get it, 
they won't thrive. 



Buckeye Brooders 

And last but not least, we must prevent 
them from crowding. 

We'll begin with our Lamp Heated Brood- 
ers. 

First of all these brooders are heated by the 
same system used in Buckeye Incubators — cir- 
onlating hot ^^ater. 

It keeps every corner of the brooder at exact- 
ly the same temperature. 

And it's that even distribution of heat that 
prevents the chicks from crowding. 

If one point in a brooder is warmer than an- 
other each chick tries to get there. 

We have a heat regulator on Buck- 
ej-e Brooders that takes care of every 
condition. 

It absolutely controls the heat 
of that brooder regardless of con- 
ditions. 

It's a good bit harder to regulate the 
heat in a brooder than in an incu- 
bator. 

When you once regulate the tem- 
perature to a particular point it wiU 
stay right there 24 hours every 
day.

'*Buckeye'* Lampless Brooders 

"V'ou know that you can be perfectly comfort- 
able in a cold room if you have plenty of blankets 
over you, in fact, if you know how to sleep under 
the most healthy conditions you wont have any 
fire in your room at all. The heat that keeps 
you warm is supplied by your own body, the 
blankets simply keep it in. That's the prin- 
ciple of the lampless brooder. The chicks get 
under the blankets and keep warm. On the in- 
side of e.'ich Buckeye I,ampless Brooder we sus- 
pend a whole lot of little flannel blankets from a 
burlap roof that is stretched across the top. The 
conditions in these lampless brooders are exactly 
the same as we find under tlie hen. When a chick 
gets under a hen he pushes his back up against the 
feathers and he's satisfied. The blankets in Buck- 
eye Lampless Brooders take the place of feathers. 
The chirks get under them. pu=h their backs up 
against them and they'er satisfied. 

That's Why They Don't Crowd.

It Hatches Every Hatchable Egg— Fvery Time. 

On March IJ, 1912. Mr. Jas. Rayncr, of 30-t 
Boiildcn Street , Baltimore . Md., -writes as follows: 

YourSO-Egs Buckeye Incubator is O. K. I had 
a ha/ch off AlarchTth, 1912. From 50 eggs I have 
47 Chicks as fine as youivant to look at. Out of 8 
hatches, my lowest hatch was41 Chicks. You 7nay 
use this for TV hat it viaybetvorth to you, and if you 
like yoti can send anyone out to investigate for 
themselves." 

Unsurpassed by any other Make. 

Having had one of your 50 egg incubators in use 
for the last season and finding it all O. K., /thought 
I ivonld write you of my results. I have had six 
hatches off the machine and out of the six runs I 
lost 17 eggs. The last two hatches were 46 from 48, 
and 47 and 48 chicks, which I think is doing some- 
thing at hatching chicks, and in the two hatches 
mentioned the regulator was not adjusted through- 
out tlie entire hatch, and the temperattire ran^just 
fine. 

Nozv the next thing I want is a full description 
of your 2U0 egg machine, and also the price of same, 
as / have run my machine along side of other 
makes and find it unsurpassed by any other make 
in use that I know of in our community. Hoping 
to hear from you at an early date.

Portable Poultry Houses and Colony Houses 



Buckeye Colony Houses 



Bolgiano's "Square-Deal" Portable Poultry Houses 



The value of a Colony house is no longer ques- 
tioned. Every experieneed Breeder uses them — 
can'tgetalong without them. The most "ticklish" 
period of chicken life is when it leaves the brooder, 
at the time it first starts to roost and shows a ten- 
dency to do all the "fool things" that young chick- 
ens do. That's the time when things must be fixed 
just right, or failure will result. 

Buckeye Colony Houses are six feet long and 
three feet wide just large enough for SO chicks. 

The roost is only a foot from the ground and its 
the kind of roost that a chick will use. eitherhouse 
can be "set up or taken down" in ten minutes and 
the only tool necessary is a screw driver. 




We have had these houses specially built for 
us. They are made of Ji pine boards, plained 
both sides, tongued and grooved and painted 
a beautiful lead color. Roof is covered with 
our heaviest 3 ply "Square-Deal Rubber Roof- 
ing — well tacked and cemented. All complete 
with dropping boards, roosts and nests. 
Bolgiano's "Square-Deal" Combination Open 
And Closed Front House 

This house is 6 ft. wide and 8 ft. deep, 6ii ft. 
high in front, 4-li ft. back. The front is board- 
ed up 3 ft. thereby avoiding any direct wind 
or storm striking the birds. The upper half 
being wired with oiled muslin screens, gives 
the open front feature with plenty of fresh air, 
at the same time keeping the birds protected 
from the weather. These houses are shipped 
knocked down — easily put together in half an 
hour. Weight, crated for shipment 550 lbs. 
Price S25.00 F. O. B. Baltimore. 




Bolgiano's "Square-Deal" Combination Open and

Bolgiano's "Square-Deal" Combined Laying And Scratchirg House 
This house is 68 in. long, 35 in wide, 44 in. high in front and 32in. high in back. Scratching house 
same size only 8 in. lower— both together making a house nearly 12 ft. long. Roof is hinged so you 
can care for your birds from front or back. Removable wire top $1.00 extra. With these tops in place, 
rats, cats or dogs cannot get at the birds. With a house of this kind, the scratch house can be alter- 
nated from one end to the ether. These houses are shipped knocked down— easily put together.

The Townsend Trap Nest 

The Townsend Trap Nest is a reliable trap nest. 
It is also an automatic setting or laying nest. By 
the use of the trap nest, one is liable to secure a 
laying record of the hen, breed up a large laying 
strain, keep an accurate and separate record of 
each hen and weed out the poor and non-layers. 
In fact, it enables you to breed up your poultry on 
whatever line you desire, whatever it be for eggs, 
flesh, form or plumage. Price, $1.50 each. Per 
Dozen Nests $15.00. 



Buckeye Portable Poultry House 

We have the reputation of building "The Best 
Poultry House on the market" and the best part 
of that reputation, "we earned it". 

It's mighty poor economy to save a few dollars 
in buying a house and lose twice as many chickens 
that die from roupor cold. The roosts are placed 
at the furthest from the openings. That prevents 
roup and cold. The lumber used in these houses 
is one-inch dressed pine flooring. All tongued and 
grooved together so thatitkeepsout the wind, rain 
and snow. It takes ten minutes to erect a Buckeye 
Portable House, or ten minutes to take one down. 




Bolgiano's "Square-Deal" Combined Laying And Scratching House 

Buckeye Open Front Portable House 

Notice the difference in the two houses, one has 
two doors in the front, one door is covered with 
wire screen, the other is covered with water-proof 
cloth. This house is called Open Front— Fresh 
Air — no yard pian Chickens kept in this style of 
house get no Free range w.iatever. They are 
placed in the house as pullets and never leave it 
until they go to the butchers block or the table. 
The outside door which is covered with water- 
proof cloth is only closed at night and in stormy 
weather and even when the door is closed there is 
a free circulation of fresh air through the house 
all the time. 

If birds are kept for laying purposes it will be 
found that the egg production will be i.Tlher in- 
creased than decreased by using the Open Front 
House and you'll never be troubled with roup or 
cold.

Conkey's Starting Food For Baby 
Chicks 

Here is just the 
feed needed to 
give the little 
fellows the right 
start. It will save 
the amateur 
from the costly 
mistakes, and 
rid the old ex- 
perienced poul- 
trynian of a lot 
of bother. Every 
poultry man 
knows it is one 
thing to hatch 
your chicks, and 
another thing 
to raise them. 
Mistakes the first few weeks may easily lead to 
a total loss or a permanent setback. Here is a 
ready prepared food which supplies all needs 
of the chicks except for fine grit or drinking 
water. Should be used alone until the chicks 
are one week old and then add green food. In 
the second week begin supplying animal food, 
also grain scattered in a litter to produce healthy 
exercise, and gradually prepare the chick for a 
regular ration of cracked grains by the time it is 
three weeks old. 

We can absolutely guarantee satisfaction with 
Conker's Starting Food For Baby Chicks. It is 
an ideal first food, combining just the right 
elements all carefully proportioned and prepared 
not too fine for best results in chick feeding. 
Can be used dry or mixed with small amount of 
water or milk, preferably the latter. Chicks eat 
it greedily. Best try it and give the little fellows 
the right start. Put up in convenient sizes, as 
follows: 1 Lb, 10c. 3 Lbs. 25c. 6}i-Lb. Pkg. 50c.

Conkey's Laying Tonic 

In order for the 
hen to lay the 
greatest number of 
eggs, her health 
must be in perfect 
condition and the 
egg producing 
organs kept free 
from irritation and 
diseases. There 
have been put upon 
the market many 
so called egg pro- 
ducers which are 
irritants in them- 
selves, while others 
are simply frauds, 
producing no 
effects whatever, 

and having no value except as foods, for which 

you are paying ridiculous prices.

Conkey's Bronchitis Cure 

Bronchitis is caused by a 
cold or sudden changes in 
temperature, by damp quar- 
ters, etc. Itis also frequently 
caused by particles of dust 
lime or other foreign matter 
breathed into the bronchial 
tubes for, unlike roup, bron- 
chitis is Inflammation of the 
membranes of the bronchial 
tubes, instead of the nostril 
and head passages. Filthy 
quarters and the breathing 
of foul air are also causes of 
this trouble. 

Symptoms. Loss of appetite, 
quick breathing and cough- 
ing, a peculiar whistling 
sound may accompany the 
breathing, which changes to 

decided rattling in later stiges. This should not 
be confounded with roup, which is indicated by 
running at the eyes, nostrils, etc. 

Treatment. Give Conkey's Bronchitis Remedy 
according to directions as early as possible. It is 
Kuaran teed to cure if given in a reasonable time.

Simplicity 
Automatic "Baby Chick" Feeder 

This Chick Feeder is a machine of perfection, 
for it completely eliminates the constant care of

Baby Chicks from the incubator will operate the 
Feeder the same as an adult fowl and the Baby 
Chicken queslion often so vexing is thus reduced 
to a purely automatic action. When through 
feeding at roost time, not a kernel of grain will 
be found in sight other than the grain in the bait 
basket; a peck at the bait basket will instantly 
begin the feeding in the morning. It operates 
freely and throws out the feed as the bait is peck- 
ed by one of the chicks, no matter from what 
direction the bait is struck. In other words, the 
Feeder should throw out Feed as soon as the chick 
shows an inclination to eat. Price of Feedercon;-

ing parts solid brass, which 
■will not wear or get out of 
order. The machine con- 
sists of a hopper large 
enough to carry a given 
quantity of grain, which 
has under it a small brass 
disc attached to a pendu- 
lum bait basket, which 
when set will release the 
grain, which is dropped on

day No valves to become

We also make any special sizes of porch

giving size wanted. 



A study of the accompanying illustration shows the water 
reservoir (E). the false bottom (D). Sponges through false 
bottom (CO, Soil (B),and body of box (A). In the right 
hand corner of the box will be noted a tube which extends 
from reservoir upward through false bottom and soil to top 
This is for the purpose of pouring water, when needed, into 
the reservoir. These sponges draw up the water slowly and 
feed the roots of the plant in exactly the right amount to 
make the life and growth of the plant a certainty. DRAIN- 
AGE, which is of utmost importance in plant culture, is pro- 
vided by a small opening in one end immediately above the 
line of the false bottom, which prevents any possibility of a 
heavy downpo\ir of rain ever drowning out the plants. It 
will be noted that this plan is what is known as Sub-irrigation 
.and is conceded by all authorities to be the most perfect plan 
ever de\'ised for the growth of any kind of plant life. 

Our method of under-watering prevents any possibility of 
the surface of the soil becoming hardened or baked as in the 
surface-watered box or pot. This one fact saves the life of 
many valuable plants. 

A liberal supply of air to the roots is constantly maintained 
through the sponges and the soil will always be found mealy 
and loose, and moisture is always evenly distributed from 
top to bottom of soil. You may think you cannot grow Flowers 
or Ferns in your home, but a trial of Illinois Self-Watering 
Flower Boxes will convince you that you are mistaken.

The New "Kant-Klog" Sprayer 

Kant-Klog- Sprayer style ''G" is operated by compressed air, with a patented Kant-Klog noz- 
zle that throws seven different sizes of round or flat sprays and solid streams. 

The sprayer body is made of heavy galvanized steel. Top and bottom are dome shaped; 
joined to body under hetivy pressure , making a complete double seam. 

The air p\imp is made of heavy brass two inches in diameter, hose couplings are solid brass, 
standard cut ends heavily ribbed to prevent hose from slipping ofi. 

A few seconds working of the air pump thoroughly agitates the solution and charges the 
sprayer with compressed air. This being a very powerful and elastic force, ■will, as soon as the 
thumb presses the "shut-off," force out the liquid in the form of a spray or a solid continuous 
stream as desired. After sprayer is charged you need not stop for anything; just walk along 
from one row to another, the machine will supply sufficient spray to enable you to do the work 
as fast as you walk. When properly charged the tank holds 3 gallons of solution and 1 gallon 
of compressed air; and two workings of the air pump will discharge the entire contents. Usedin 
greenhouses, poultry houses, the garden and for all plant life including trees. The "Kant-Klog" 
nozzle furnished with each machine without extra cost, and special attention iscalled to this 
nozzle, as it is the only one that can be cleaned without stopping the spray or removing the

Fertilizers For The Farm, Garden and Lawn 

-We present a list of oii'- brands of lei tilizers. You cannot judge the merits of a Fertilizer only by the 
analysis, biit you must have a knowledge of the basis from which it has been made. 

It is a well known fact t' ac he animal waste products produced in the abattoirs' g-ives the' purest and most 
available basis for Ammonia and Phospnoric Acid. This is tlie basis of our goods. The company that manu- 
factures our Fertilizers ow:: and control a Eufificient number of abattoirs, independent of the meat trust, to 
.secure for our poods this unescellea scource for our plantfood. The expense is almost as much working and 
reaping one half a crop as it would be harvesting a full crop which a good lertilizer would help to produce. 

ClaremDrt Vegetable Grower. 

Nitrogerl 2.46 to 3.29 per cent. Available Phosphoric Acid 7. 

Kqual to ' ' {" Total Phosphoric Acid 13. 

Ammonia 3. to4.''' percent^ Potash (Actual) 5. 

This is our pioneer brand, which is made frornthe best material knowji to the trade 
the most soluble form and the elements of composition so well balanct'd, makes it a desirable fertilizer for 
most crops. ' When in doubt as to what vou should use to produce results call on the Clnremont. Use 300 to 
400 pounds to the acre. 251bs.75c. 50 lbs. SI. 25. lOOlbs. $1.75. 2i lbs. S3.00. 2.000 lbs., ton, $26.50.

iCqual to Total Phosphoric Acid 13. to 15. percent. 

Ammonia 3. to 4. percent. Potash (actual) 10. to 12. percent. 

This brand is especially adopted to the potato crop and contains the proportionate elements necessary to 
start and carry a crop through to maturity. As laid down by the most experienced, being composed of dis- 
solved bone, higrh grade potash in the mostsoluble form, it sf<inds unrivaled in its line, and will fulfil its mis- 
sion if the grower but gives it a loose soil ion the tubers to work and develop in. Use 800 to 1000 lbs. to the acre. 
25lbs..75c. 50 lbs. $1.25. 100 lbs. $2.00. 200 lbs. $3.50. 2,000 lbs., ton, $31.00.
